In this course students will examine social, political and economic issues relevant to Canada's largest urban centre: Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. Students will learn about contemporary Toronto by analyzing the historical evolution of present-day municipal institutions and services. Diverse social issues, from changing demographics to the development of cultural institutions, will be presented in the same historical context. An examination of the economy of the city will include key historical developments, the impact of free trade (NAFTA), and Toronto's place in the national and global economies.
